Icecrown Details Revealed!
Some of you may have noticed, but after launching a brand new EU site, Blizzard decided to pop another surprise at us - in the "Under Dev" section there, about the Icecrown Citadel. Back during BlizzCon, we were told that Icecrown will be composed of two major parts - a huge 5-man dungeon, and a 10/25-man raid. Well, here is the information about the 5-man instance part of it...
: The information below does not mean, nor imply that the Icecrown Citadel is going to be a 5-man dungeon. It doesn't mean that the Lich King is going to be a 5-man boss either. There is a separate raid, information for which has not been released after BlizzCon.
We may end up fighting some form of the Lich King in the 5-man however - a memory, a vision, an illusion...

A Bit of Nostalgia - Who Got You Playing WoW?
Time for a bit of
to feed your addiction. As if it's possible to play World of Warcraft or visit Wowhead without becoming an addict.
Who got you into WoW?
I remember my best e-friend named Shawn. We came from
Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided
, also heavy
players in intermediate gaming leagues (2v2 and 5v5). He introduced me to WOW when he got in the beta. I checked the website and said, "That thing looks corny, and I don't think it's exciting at all. The story sounds good, but..." Oh, how little did I know. I was addicted as soon as

Strategist: Trial of the Grand Crusader
So this is the last one of the Trial of the Crusader Strategists. Really. This time.
I am going to use this introductory paragraph to explain why the Grand Crusader is different - in general - and then dive into the specific details of each fight.
First, you start Trial of the Grand Crusader with 50 "unsuccessful attempts". Every time you wipe - or every time a boss resets, you lose 1 attempt. When you lose all 50, all bosses despawn and you can't do anything until the next reset. There are two reward systems, to promote better performance. The items that drop off bosses of higher level than the normal version of the raid - they are essentially the same items, with buffed stats. And then there is the Tribute Chest. As I understand it, the Tribute Chest will always contain 2 Trophies/Regalias (for 10/25 respectively) and a number of items. If you reach it with 25-44 attempts left, you get an extra Trophy/Regalia and an extra item. For 45-49 attempts left, you gain another one. And for a perfect run (50 attempts left), you get one unique mount and a very high level cloak.
Now that you are all familiar with the basic idea behind the Heroic raid mode, let's
I HERD U LIEK ICONZ...
With patch 3.2.2 being released, I'm sure you're all excited about some of the new stuff that is being introduced. I, for one, am looking forward to being told by several thousand people that I stole my name from an
all over again, even though it was the other way around.
Bitter? No, not at all.
Not after I kill the wench...
So yeah, pretty pictures! We found
new icons in this patch, most of which seem to be related to non-combat pets. Check them out!
Patch 3.2.2 - WoW's 5th Anniversary, Onyxia and More!
World of Warcraft is celebrating its
starting this month! Five years of leveling, questing, partying, pvping, raiding, farming - what a long, strange trip it's been, indeed! Some of you may remember logging in last year and finding an adorable new
waiting for you in your mailbox. This year, you're in for another treat! Log in this year during the 5th Anniversary celebration and you will receive an Onyxian Whelpling, an adorable little dragon whelp in the likeness of the brood mother herself,
! And speaking of Onyxia...
5 Years of WoW
Just as the new Onyxia encounter has reminded us, WoW has now been with us for five years. :)
I was preparing the posts and patch information for 3.2.2, and I couldn't help but wax melancholy (as I am wont to do) about my time in WoW. Five years makes for a lot of memories. It's not unusual to get
after a five year relationship—and yet here we are spending all of that time with a video game.
I even took some time to go back and look through how the World of Warcraft Official Site looked back in the day—does
look familiar to anyone? Dwarf mages, old fashioned troll and human models.../sigh. Those were the days.
So in honor of WoW's 5th anniversary, I've been asking the staff about their oldest and fondest memories of WoW. I've included a number of them here, after the break. Come and see!
Strategist: Onyxia 3.2.2
Why, hello there! You take your eyes away from the game for a little while and there it is - 5 years pass by. As
would say: "
5 years, you say? Well, you're certainly the bearer of wonderful news, aren't you? Next you're going to tell me that Onyxia is still alive and attacking the city.
" Well, what do you know - old Elling has a big surprise brewing up for him.
is in fact alive (kind of, but we don't mind) and back, ready to wreck raids once more!
And as you very well know, every time a new raid boss pops up, a new Strategist is spawned as well. Buckle up, break the piggy-bank with money for extra repair bills, stock up with flasks, and get ready for even MOAR DOTZ!
